If you missed the 2013 Gaspé-Percé VAF, or just want to revisit some of the resources, I'd like to let you know that the field guides are now available online. The seven highly illustrated booklets interpret the buildings, sites and landscapes of the eastern-most tip of the Gaspé Peninsula. The authors draw upon primary sources including historic photographs, postcards, interviews as well as field recording to present each site on the tours.

The contents showcase five editions of the Université Laval School of Architecture Field School in Built Heritage and Cultural Landscapes, community-based projects, and intensive documentation campaigns under the supervision of Tania Martin.

While we have obtained permission to “publish” the booklets, use is restricted for educational, private study or research purposes, provided the source of the images and/or texts is clearly indicated. If you wish to reproduce any of the images taken from archival sources (i.e. a historic photograph) please obtain special permission directly from the holder (museum, individual, etc.).

Also, we are working towards supplementing the booklets with additional plans, sections, and elevations drawn from field recording notes as well as contemporary (2007-2013) photographs of the buildings, sites and landscapes. A “slide packet” of sorts.

If you attended the 2013 Gaspé-Percé VAF and wish to share your photographs, please join the VAF Flickr group at  Just send a request to join the group, and then it is easy to post and explore the images from other members.
